New Music Monday: We Were Promised Jetpacks

Ever since hearing the gritty track "Quiet Little Voices", many of us at BTA have been anxiously awaiting the release of Glasgow's WWPJ's full length, These Four Walls. Now that it's here, I've been listening to it non-stop. It's brit-rock with an edge, something that's been lacking in the mainstream for a while. Aside from having one of the most creative band names out there, these guys fill a void that many bands couldn't fill. The tracks are empassioned and blunt, without being brash. Melodic rock that was slaughtered by the emergence of "nu-metal" makes a strong return with WWPJ.
The album's holistic goodness only increases this bands appeal. Standout tracks include the aforementioned "Quiet Little Voices" and "Thunder and Lightning". Looking forward to seeing these guys on tour in the future.
